Jungian Rendering of the Sufi Path to Individuation Ashok Bedi, MD Friday, November 2, 2018 │ 8:30am-5pm Scriptures, myths, fairy tales, legends, artistic creations of different cultures and religions embody the shared archetypal wisdom and forms the building blocks of the Collective Psyche and the shared heritage and crucial data base of human civilization. Jung emphasized the critical importance of exploring divergent cultures other then own host culture to get multi-dimensional understanding of the human condition. This permits a better clinical management of our patient’s suffering by offering a broader repertoire of archetypal substrate to draw from. Jung explored the Sufi tradition as embodied in the 18th Sura of Koran a the 1939 Eranos Conference. We will explore the 18th Sura of Koran to unpack the Mystical Sufi path to Individuation. This will be further amplified by Jung’s Red Book, Clinical vignettes and a Swirling Dervishes movie clip. Required Reading   - org/quran/frames/ch18.html.

In our Collective, we are at the cusp of an Enantodromia – a return to the Opposite from Patriarchal culture to the Return of the Goddess. Though Carl Jung’s central contribution was about the Feminine Psyche and the Anima function, in his inner work as depicted in his Red Book, he was ambivalent about the feminine as embodied by Salome – a controversial figure in the Biblical rendering. Let the land of the Goddess Kali, Durga and the Great Mother Shakti light your path to the mystery of the Soul and the emerging archetypes to guide the Collective Consciousness in our troubled and chaotic time. Join us in this magical encounter with the Goddess Soul of India from Orissa to Kolkata to the country side of Karnataka outside Bangalore. Explore the former British capital Kolkata before it was moved to New Delhi in 1911. Discover its colonial heritage and revolutionary rebellions, sailing on the Brahmaputra and Hoogly rivers, visiting Durga and Kali temples where they become alive. We stay at Rajbari Bawali, a regal heritage mansion in the Bengali countryside located along the Ganges river banks. We will explore the Village Goddess with spiritual walks and boat rides on the holy river. The Golden Triangle of Bhubaneswar, Puri and Konark let’s us explore Hindu temples and Buddhist caves, many dating back to the 7AD, including the famous Unesco Heritage Sun Temple and the Jagannath Temple.   The journey concludes with a five day Jungian retreat with Dr. Bedi’s lectures at Shreyas Retreat www.shreaysretreat.com focusing on Goethe’s Faust and the Faustian Bargain with the Devil. He will explore the Eastern paradigm to deal with the Shadow in the Archetypes of the Ten Avatars of God Vishnu…
